CTEHR is currently in it’s 5th round of pilot project awards. Click the “Apply” tab for details.

The Pilot Project Program (PPP) is an integral component of the CTEHR, and is designed to enhance the overall mission of the Center and promote the goals of NIEHS, by advancing and promoting environmental health research. This Program will support early-stage projects with the potential to advance the science and enhance the environmental health impact of the five Thematic Focus Areas of the CTEHR: Early Life Exposures, Microbiome, Chronic Diseases, Metabolism and Enabling Technologies.

OVERVIEW

The Center for Translational Environmental Health Research (CTEHR) is currently in its third round of pilot projects. While the current application cycle is closed, the Pilot Project Program anticipates soliciting applications for proposals annually, funding early-stage research with budgets up to $50,000, based on $25,000 CTEHR support and matching funds from the applicant’s College or Department.

In previous rounds, the major objective for pilot project funding is to provide financial support for applications with strong environmental health significance, and the potential to obtain R01/R21 NIEHS funding. In addition to scientific merit, other criteria considered in the review of applications include utilization of the Center’s Facility Cores, collaborative approaches, impact on career development, and relevance to Center themes and goals.

The Center for Translational Environmental Health Research (CTEHR) Pilot Project Program (PPP) is soliciting applications for Pilot Project proposals in anticipation of funding 5-6 projects up to $50,000, based on $25,000 CTEHR support and potential matching funds from the applicants’ College or Department.

The major objective for this round of pilot projects is to provide financial support for applications with strong environmental health significance and the potential to obtain RO1/R21 NIEHS funding within 2 to 3 years. Submission of proposals aligned with the Center’s mission and thematic focus areas impacting human environmental health (i.e. early life exposures, the microbiome, chronic disease, metabolism, and enabling technologies) are encouraged. Applicants must submit a letter of intent (LOI), which briefly outlines the project (1 page limit) by 5:00 pm on September 7, 2016. Invitations for full proposals will be sent to applicants by September 14, 2016 with full applications due by October 7, 2016. All proposals will be reviewed and scored externally via members of the P30 Pilot Grant Reviewer Consortium. It is anticipated that funding decisions will be made in November 2016.

The CTEHR Pilot Project Program application form and instructions are attached. Please submit all application materials to Dan Na Luo (dluo@ibt.tamhsc.edu).
